  • Mood:

My face is sliding off my skull

Just came back from the dentist. It took a REALLY long time for my mouth to get numb, and he had to use a LOT of Novocaine

For comparison, most patients require 1/2 a dose (don't know how big a "dose" is)
Sometimes, for particularly sensitive areas, he will use a full dose.

I needed 4 and a half.

He finally had to shoot it almost to the bone. The left side of my face is completely numb from the back of the roof of my mouth, all the way up to my eye socket.

It will probably be sometime this evening before I regain full sensation. Until then, I don't dare eat anything for fear of taking a chomp out of my tongue.
Well, this is one way to cut back on those between-meal snacks.
